MADRA Gerald is loving our dry and calm day today at the kennels, those soft eyes would melt your 💙 #AdoptDontShophttps://t.co/6noxEULBF6
I know, I know, I’m absolutely stunning! I never tire of hearing it either so feel free to tell me what a show stopping beauty I am! ;) You see, I might be aware of how beautiful I am but I possess intelligence so I know looks aren't what truly matters in life. I can guarantee that you’ll be highly impressed with my manners when you meet me. I had a hugely devoted family but sadly their circumstances changed and they could no longer care for me. It was all very upsetting for all of us so I don’t want to dwell on that. My family spent a great deal of time training me and you can rest assured that I am amazingly versatile, excelling at most anything I am trained to do.


My foster mum said that I am so incredibly sweet. I might be a big dog and I know some people are scared of dogs like me but I am as soft as a puppy on the inside, just without all the silliness! Although I definitely have my moments of silliness....you can turn me into a giddy little pupster in seconds by producing a squeaky toy!!! I simply can’t resist them and it makes everyone around me laugh when they see me with my toys, so that makes me happy too! :) I am back at the kennels after my foster break and the humans are worried about me as us Shepherds don’t fare well in kennels, away from our humans and the folks here would hate to see me getting stressed out so finding a home now is of great importance.


I got on brilliantly my foster mum’s dogs and at the kennels, I share our big pen with lots of other dogs of all shapes and sizes and I am always very polite and friendly to them all.......manners don’t cost a thing, I always say! So, if you are looking for a single dog or a second dog, please consider me. I am a faithful companion and all about proving my loyalty to you. My devotion and courage are unmatched. I can tell you that I’m not the girl for you if you're away from home for long periods of time. I am typical of the shepherd breed in that I want to be with my people as much as possible. I am a bit sensitive in that manner but if you are used to the shepherd ways, you will understand what I mean. What do I want in life? Well, I want what I think we all want in life....someone who will love and respect me. Oh and I must insist on a nice, secure garden and a cat free home as I can’t promise I wouldn’t chase them as it looks like so much fun! ;)


Other than that, if you are looking for a truly magnificent and gentle companion, I pinky promise I’m the girl for you.

 

Update 06/09/2017: 

Dizzy came into us pregnant and had five babies.  Sadly two of them passed away but Dizzy's currently nursing her other puppies who are only two weeks old now. Dizzy and her babies will all be looking for homes once they are big enough to leave her in a few weeks.
